HOUSTON — A Fort Worth driver is suing a Texas millwork business, alleging failure to pay overtime.

John Richard Henderson filed a a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of similarly situated individuals, June 20 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Woodgrain Millwork Inc., doing business as Woodgrain Distribution alleging the millwork manufacturer violated the Fair Labor Standards Act.

According to the complaint, Henderson has worked as a driver for more than 40 hours a week, and often 60-65 hours per week, without receiving an overtime premium from Woodgrain.
